that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

home … and stuff

Apparently we are heading up north BC for Christmas. I don’t have much more to say on the subject other than that… it is exactly one month today until the festivities begin. There is not much more special than the thought of the whole family back in Smithers for the annual Christmas Eve evening with my mom’s family. Or snow, something lacking in the Okanagan Christmasses. I am crossing my fingers inside that my uncle can create the snow maze in his farm fields and Lake Kathlyn’s water is frozen in to a beautiful skating rink. Maybe there will be brunch with the crafts group or salmon patté at Hawse’s. I know Hardy’s will still have a place to lounge (and pie) and the ski hill just might see me on it. And if it’s really cold, I will catch a flick at the Roi and a drink at the Alpenhorn, before bundling up to sled all the way down L’Orsa’s driveway. Hay ride singing Christmas carols? And are we old enough yet for Adult Games Night?

I guess I had a bit to say… but mostly, I can’t wait for a Christmas, finally, at home.
